It’s Day 1 here at Awesome Con and we’ve sorted through the entire schedule and picked out all the Star Wars stuff the day has to offer. So before you head out the door, check out the schedule below and plan your entire day right here!
The weekend is getting off to a great start and each day brings something new and exciting, but don’t forget, running all weekend long are great Star Wars events such as the official Lucasfilm exhibit. The exhibit features costumes and props from The Last Jedi including costumes from Rey and Luke Skywalker and props such as lightsabers and even Porgs! The exhibit runs Friday thru Sunday and is located in The Backlot on the Lower Level.
And of course no event would be complete without the 501st Legion, the Rebel Legion and the Mandalorian Mercs coming out in full force. They’ll be around all weekend so if you see a member from one of these wonderful groups, don’t forget to say hi and maybe even grab a photo or two! The groups will be holding special events this weekend but you can find them and other Star Wars related groups at the following locations in the "Backlot" section of the Exhibit Hall:
The Rebel Legion: Terrapin Base - Booth 637
R2D2 Builders of DC - Booth 641
The 501st Legion: Old Line Garrison - Booth 645
The Saber Legion - Booth 741
The Mandalorian Mercs - Booth 745
